amazing

this book poetically explores the mysteries of suffering and death from a Christian perspective. Nicholas will not give you answers that don't exist, but he will grieve with you and let you know that you are loved.

Not for the newly bereaved

Somebody who has recently lost a loved one and is in the throes of acute grief should probably not read this lamentation. I lost my 21 year old son 2 months ago and my grief is unbearable. This book provided no support or comfort. It felt scrambled and it was unsettling. I would not recommend it for the newly bereaved.
